We won’t tell, but in your heart you’ll know you deserved it more than they did.

Brookes, only 44, was the drummer of The Charlatans and a man that touched many by his music and also his magnetic personality. He had an incredible zeal for life and worked with and managed many young musicians throughout his career.
Jamie Hewlett is a renowned worldwide award winning artist known across the globe.

In his own words he tells us the story: ‘Although I released a bunch of other rap records over the years, this one is still my favourite. If you like beats programmed off-kilter and lyrics in a stream of consciousness – you might like it too!

VNA 26 Release! – Online and in stores!

VNA_26_BOTH_COVERS_2_S

In VNA 26 we’ve managed to cram in large-scale muralists, fine art, graff writers who’ve transitioned to galleries, abstract art and even some skateboarding. From London and California, to New York and Penang by way of Bristol, we’ve scoured the world to bring you a mix of awesome artists we’ve just discovered alongside some of our old favourites who haven’t yet had their time to shine in VNA.

VNA_26_BOTH_COVERS_S

As for the cover artist, we’ve returned to the UK to chat to a hugely influential artist and a bit of a personal hero of ours, Robert Del Naja, a character from the art world perhaps better known by his musical moniker; Massive Attack’s 3D.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_1

After our inaugural visit to Pow! Wow! Hawaii, we made the most of our contacts there, staying in touch with Augustine Kofie and going back to dig in the crates with Buff Monster. We’ve pulled out the stops to bring you some gallery talk with Jonathan LeVine, as well as crossing over to Australia to catch up with James Jirat Patradoon and Numskull.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_2

We also feature 10101010101010101010, or Ten Ten for short, the mystical eastern styles of Calma, London-based print wizard, Aida, and US-artist, Greg Lamarche. To keep things fresh, we’ve also gone large with Lithuanian street painter Ernest Zacharevic and a little abstract too by chatting to Icelandic mark-maker, Katrin Fridriks.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_3

Photo features focus on London, Singapore and Los Angeles, with contributions from NoLionsInEngland, Claude Crommelin, Mark Rigney, Chasing Ghosts and Birdman.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_4

With cover shots from the talented photographer James Sharrock, we’re stepping up our game all round and pushing the boat out with no less than 4 different covers available over the next couple of weeks.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_5

VNA 26 Is available to buy online from www.verynearlyalmost.com or you can pick up a copy in your awesome local Newsagent – we’re now stocked at WHSmith in the UK and Barnes & Noble in the USA, as well as a whole host of smaller, independent stores.

VNA_26_CONTENTS_6

As usual, it wouldn’t be a VNA launch without a big party to celebrate the release of the LTD Editions, and this time we have another dual-city launch in both London at Lazarides Outsiders and Bristol, at Weapon Of Choice Gallery, with delicious, beery support from our buddies at NYC’s Sixpoint Brewery.
